I was wondering if anyone could tell me where to get a 125+g glass aquarium. I know you can go to LFS's, but they're always independent small shops. I've seen "reef ready" tanks while shopping around. They have overflow boxes in them and tubes coming out.

What advantages does a "reef ready" tank have over regular aquariums?


Are there any large scale places to a big tank from that can maybe bring the price down a little bit?

Any LFS can order that size tank. Most company's wont deliver a glass aquarium to your house because it can break in transport. The difference between reef ready and regular is that a reef ready has an overflow built into it, and a regular tank you have to purchase an overflow for the water can be transferred to the sump. Also a reef ready can not overflow if the power cuts out were an overflow box has a high chance of over flowing the main tank if the power cuts out.

I would say get it reef ready. You'll be much happier in the end. Check out glasscages.com for custom tanks delivered to the house. Generally cheaper then LFS prices. Most of the people I know that were willing to spend the money on a LFS tank, put the savings towards an even larger tank from Glasscages.
